Mayor's Message


WELCOME BACK "COFFEE WITH THE MAYOR!"  This hasn't occurred since before last November and I'm excited about beginning this monthly time again to connect with residents! It will be held Saturday, November 8th from 8:00 a.m. til 10:00 a.m. at City Hall (301 Walnut). Looking forward to seeing you there!

The City of Washington would like to thank everyone for their dedication to this community and for all the undertaken efforts that have been and will be ongoing in our community for quite some time. We look forward to rebuilding together and are thankful for everyone who has shown their support from near and far.

One team. One town. One country. One heart. Washington Strong.

Over the past decade, Washington has been among the fastest growing communities in central Illinois: 1,500 new housing starts, new commercial construction totaling about 900,000 square feet, and a 40% growth in population. We are pleased that so many families have chosen to make Washington home.

The addition of Five Points Washington is among our community’s most notable accomplishments. Dedicated in 2007, Five Points Washington features a performing arts auditorium; a public library; an aquatics center; a banquet center; and a state of the art recreation, wellness and fitness area. The project was a collaborative enterprise involving a not-for-profit corporation, four units of local government and many civic-minded donors and volunteers. Five Points has become the focal point for learning, recreation, entertainment and social interaction.

While we are rightfully proud of our traditions and recent accomplishments, we are confident that our best is yet to come. If you are a new resident, we encourage you to partner with us in crafting our future. If you are looking for a new place to call home, consider Washington.

Together we can...together we will!
